The future of education is here: CAST Teach opens state-of-the-art facilities for future educators.
In partnership with the CAST Schools Network and the University of Texas at San Antonio’s College of Education and Human Development, Northside ISD celebrated the next generation of educators with the dedication and ribbon cutting of a new CAST Teach High School facility.
The school opened in August 2022 but now officially has a building to call its own on the John Paul Stevens High School campus. The school has unique lab spaces and observation rooms to nurture and train future teachers while allowing them to gain practicum experience.
The Grand Opening Ceremony included remarks by students Jayanne Garza, TAFE Presidents, Tatiana Bolden, TAFE Region Secretary, plus Dr. John Craft, Northside ISD Superintendent, Dr. Carol Harle, Northside ISD Board Member and CAST Schools Leadership Coach, Jeanne Russell, CAST Schools Executive Directory, Dr. Mario Torres, Dean of University of Texas San Antonio College of Education and Human Development.
Darian De La Garza, who aspires to be a superintendent one day, and Olivia Rosas, the first student to ever apply to CAST Teach High School, led the cutting of the ribbon to open the school officially.
Guests were welcomed and entertained by the Stevens High School Drumline, Cheer and Pep Squad, and jazz band. JROTC and CAST Teach students led the presentation of colors for the national anthem.
